At Sedation Dental Care at Raleigh Smile Center, all of our dentures are cosmetically designed to mimic the appearance of natural teeth to help give you a confident and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Dentures are often a common restoration option to replace missing teeth. Dentures are often made as fixed or removable modelas and can help restore single or multiple teeth based on the individual’s needs.
Fixed dentures, also known as snap-in dentures, are held in place with a screw and can only be removed with the help of a dentist. These dentures are more stable than conventional dentures and can help restore patient confidence with their natural appearance.
Traditional dentures are glued in with adhesives and are often made to be removable, meaning that they can easily be taken out of the mouth for cleaning and while sleeping.
Did You Know?
Dentures can enhance the smile’s appearance in cases where multiple missing teeth are present. Additionally, dentures can also improve chewing, speech, and digestion. Dentures may also help reduce the appearance of a sunken face or the severity of frown lines due to helping the patient regain missing tooth height.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Am I a candidate for dentures?
You may be a candidate for dentures if you have multiple missing teeth or an entire mouthful of missing teeth. You may also be a candidate for dentures if you are in need of a tooth extraction(s) due to severe tooth decay or gum disease. To find out if dentures are right for you, schedule a consultation with Sedation Dental Care at Raleigh Smile Center today.
What can I expect when getting dentures?
When getting dentures, you can expect to attend several appointments over the course of several weeks. This is because several “try on” appointments are needed to ensure the final product fits flawlessly. During the first appointment, a dental impression of your mouth will be taken and used to produce a denture prototype. The necessary adjustments will be made to ensure a comfortable fit before the final denture is fabricated.
Once your dentures have been placed, you can expect to undergo a transition period. In the first few days or weeks after you get dentures, it is normal to experience excess salivation, sore gums, and problems with eating and speaking. As your mouth adjusts, the excess salivation and soreness should fade, and it will become easier to eat and speak. During this time, it is important to remain patient and positive.
How do I care for my dentures?
Caring for your dentures means that you will need to remove them every night and store them in a glass of water or denture solution. This allows your gums to have a break and prevents you from damaging your dentures while you sleep. After removing your dentures, you will need to thoroughly clean them, as well as your gums to prevent gum disease. Your dentist will provide you with specific information on how to care for your dentures.
